Version Summary:Functional code that demonstrates an exploit of the Oracle Java ByteComponentRaster buffer overflow remote code execution vulnerability is publicly available.
 
 
Description
A vulnerability in the 2D component of Oracle Java Runtime Environment could allow an unauthenticated, remote attacker to execute arbitrary code.

The vulnerability is due to insufficient bounds checks on user-supplied raster attributes data. An attacker could exploit the vulnerability by convincing a user to visit a malicious web page. A successful exploit could allow the attacker to execute arbitrary code.

Functional code that demonstrates an exploit of this vulnerability is publicly available.

Oracle has confirmed the vulnerability and released software updates.
 
Warning Indicators
The following Oracle products are vulnerable:
  • Oracle Java SE JDK and JRE 7 Update 21 and prior
  • Oracle Java SE JDK and JRE 6 Update 45 and prior
  • Oracle Java SE JDK and JRE 5 Update 45 and prior
